An optional tour offered by our river cruise company, at the meeting place in Zurich, which was a bus trip to nearby Lucerne. I highly recommend taking this option. Lucerne is built on both sides of the Reuss River as it empties into Lake Lucerne flanked by beautiful mountains. The fourteen century wooden Chapel Bridge rebuilt in 1993 after a fire is certainly a tourist draw and perfect photo op!
Lakeside right at the Chapel Bridge is the Rathuis Braueri. with these dazzling copper fermentation vats. The food was pricey, but the beer was delicious!
As you can see I am very enthusiastic about being in Lucerne! It's anchors away this afternoon, first stop Strasbourg, France.
